Tsingtao Beer has a pleasant aroma and a well-balanced taste. It has high-malty flavor and well-hopped character. Tsingtao is produced with spring water from Laoshan, a mountain area famous throughout China for the purity of its water. The domestically-grown hops used to brew Tsingtao are of such high quality that they are also exported to European breweries. Tsingtao also uses the finest yeast and barley imported from Australia and Canada in its brewing process.

NOTE: Under this entry, rate ONLY exported Tsingtao that roughly matches the ABV and local Tsingtao that matches it completely. If it differs in any way and doesn’t match the other entries under the brewer, please send in a bug report with the alcohol percentage, degrees plato (important!), the GTIN and preferably a link to a picture of both the front and the back label so that we can set up an entry.

Didn’t expect much, but have been hitting some of these asian swills lately. Bottle opened with a strong skunk smell. Color was pretty light, yellow with a very slight off orange tint. Huge head merley from the artificial carbonation and it subsided just like a soda (some lacing throughout, though). Mouthfeel was decent for a swill and the flavor was corn malty with a mild (pleasant) hop finish that would be typical of a weak Pilsner. Wasn’t a great beer, but I’ve had worse.

Bottle: Skunky aroma, porued a see-through amber with large, frothy head. Watery flavor, reminded me of a Miller Lite, but aftertaste was better. A sweet taste, should probably be taken with Chinese food to get the full experince. I’d rate higher, but the flavor doesn’t do much alone. Not a bad beer, just not a good one either.

[bottle from peckhams] bland, skunky, cereal bollocks. I’ll avoid this in future.

I was introuduced to Tsingtao during a sushi dining experience. I found the flavor sweet and mild. The appearance is clear golden in color. Overall I place it as a refreshing & complimentary beverage for chinese or japanese cusine if you can’t handle or don’t like Sake.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2006 Nasty. Asahi Super Dry was my lowest rated beer before this, but atleast that was completely bland and inoffensive. This is similarly watery, a bit sweeter. Cloying. Horrendously oily aroma, infact if there were minus marks on the aroma scale for exceptional circumstances, this would be there.

Better than average lager. Taste is a bit malty with some hops presence. Smooth to drink and finished nice and crisp. Better than most beers available at the local Chinese restaurant.

Not as bland as I expected. Actually very refreshing with a decent sweet malty base. Almost no bitterness.

Not one of the best beers in the world, but it is the #1 branded export from China. Typical premium lager with a little more flavor than it’s domestic counterparts.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2015 21 Mar 2006 - Very light sweet and hop aroma. Clear yellow colour, lowish head and lacing. Sweet-sweet and low hop flavour. Hoppy bitter finish. Too damn sweet to balance, to rate it higher.
